Numenera: Shadows of the Past
The land’s current ruler is Queen Armalu, whose reign has lasted several lifetimes. During her perpetual rule, most branches of the royal family have died off, leaving the line of succession a murky matter.

Their rivalry has sparked much discord, though neither is prepared to back down from the throne.
